Morata shrugged off an attempted embrace from his manager and trudged towards the away bench, after another wasteful night in front of goal. In this match, he had three or four opportunities.

Maurizio Sarri made a decision to leave out Eden Hazard and Mateo Kovavic, although he still fielded a strong line-up that included the likes of N'Golo Kante, Pedro, Willian and Jorginho.

It is not a big problem now because we have played only six matches but in the future it may be a problem.

That will not reassure Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Gary Cahill, who are yet to start for the Blues this season.

A scheduled flight from Thessaloniki to London was cancelled after weather warnings, meaning Chelsea will return to Cobham on Friday afternoon - less than 48 hours before they are due to face West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday.
